Pre-Concert Talks

The Charlotte Symphony is committed to delivering exceptional musical experiences. By sharing information and the exciting stories behind the music before each Classical concert, we hope concertgoers will feel more connected to the in-concert experience.

Before each concert, Resident Conductor Christopher James Lees or a guest conductor or artist leads a discussion about the evening's repertoire and composers. Join us as the front of the orchestra level immediately following the performances for a post-concert talk-back.

Pre-Concert Talks are free and accessible to all Charlotte Symphony ticketholders.
